Welcome To The Proofed Writing Tips Blog

The key to great writing is understanding the rules of language. This will let you express your ideas as clearly as possible. But it will also mean you know how and when to bend the rules creatively!

As such, we have developed this collection of writing tips. Look out for posts on topics including spelling, word choice, grammar, and referencing. And we want this to be a resource for everyone, from students and poets to professionals and businesses, so let us know if there is something you would like to read about.

Why We’re Here

When we proofread or edit a document, we leave comments to help our customers learn from the changes we make and improve their understanding of the English language. These comments often link to helpful articles with in-depth explanations of the issues at hand, meaning our users can learn more than they would from simply seeing a correction.
